Airport Central Community Zone
Construction of the Skybridge between the airport terminals and the station is progressing well, with the link now nearing completion. Once operational, the elevated walkway will provide undercover access to Airport Central Station. From this point, passengers will be able to travel by escalator or lift down to the concourse level.
Construction is ongoing at all levels of Airport Central Station. At concourse level, temporary struts are being removed and metal decks that will hold the tunnel ventilation system are being installed.
At ground level, following delivery of the first steel components, 12 modules for the 51m-wide station roof are being assembled and the first two have been craned into place already.
Following the closure of the final section of the station’s ground level slab, located at the western end of site, waterproofing and backfilling works are now underway. The area will eventually be integrated back into the short-term car park.
At the lowest level of the station, the island platform is now 75 per cent complete. The final section of the platform will be poured in the first half of 2020, with preparation works already underway.
